Queen Elizabeth II will not yet retire, according to fresh reports. The Queen is nervous that Britain's monarchy would collapse if she is not around!
She is not willing to leave her position to Prince Charles or to Prince William, as she feels that no one can replace her or carry out her responsibilities as well as she can, according toCeleb Dirty Laundry.
Having suffered an intense cold and postponed her Christmas attendance to Sandringham, she seemed to have triggered the gossip mill big time. Everyone wondered if she was planning to retire. People subjected Prince Charles to intense scrutiny.
Royal commentator John Lloyd even wrote, "It is on paper simple: to her eldest son, Charles, Prince of Wales, 68 last month. But here's the rub. Though less unpopular than he was during the divorce from Princess Diana in 1996, and after her death in 1997, his approval ratings remain mediocre, and even admirers think he should abjure the throne for his elder son, Prince William."
Hence, the interesting question is, will Prince Charles abdicate the throne to his eldest son as Prince William is more popular? There is a catch even in that. While Prince William is more liked than Prince Charles, the son does not seem to be as dedicated to duties as the father.
Sources accuse William and his wife of abdicating their responsibilities all the time. Both Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton have been called a "work-allergic" couple that goes out on multiple vacations every year instead of working.
Hence, the Queen is worried to be leaving the monarchy in shambles, that is why she is not abdicating the throne, says the gossip mill. She might not want to select Prince Charles as King, and at the same time, she feels that Prince William would not be as hard at work as she herself has been she is the person who "legitimizes all the laws and appoints all the ministers," explain the media till.
Hence, worried about the future of the monarchy, Queen Elizabeth II is refusing to give up her responsibilities. The public too hopes she doesn't step down.
After Brexit, Queen Elizabeth II enjoys her highest approval ratings in 20 years. An April poll found that 75 percent of respondents believe that she plays an "important" role. Just one in five want her to retire, which is a major jump, compared to 50 percent in 1981, according to Newsweek.
